president obama came to town and there was the initial outreach, the republican party. and this republican said to me, he's doing the wrong thing. he should take a party on the knees, grab it by the scruff of the neck. this was advice of what a republican strategist would've done to a party that was failing. then he can get through the agenda. but that is so not president obama's -- not the way this president operates. the idea he would go to these democrats who have voted against something that he clearly put a lot of store by, saying, right, you voted against me, i'm going to do everything i can to make your life hell until you switch your vote. i don't see the president doing that. it may be the most effective way to do it, but i don't see that's the way he's going to operate. >> maybe, steve rattner, he should do that for the families of newtown. >> first of all, margaret thatcher and winston churchill didn't have to make phone calls. if they didn't get their way -- >> didn't stop her. >> that's true. she had to make phone calls. but the point is there were consequences if they did not
and say, well, the republicans are holding up president obama's nominations. i didn't think that was true, so i asked my staff to work with the congressional research service and i consequently to the floor today to include in the record the facts which show that it's not true. here's the bottom line: the senate has confirmed president obama's nominations for cabinet and circuit court but not his district court nominations more rapidly than it did those of president george w. bush or president clinton. in 2013 the senate changed its rules to speed up consideration of those district judge nominations. in the history of the senate -- of course, this includes president obama -- no cabinet member, unless you count john bolton's nominations by george w. bush to be the u.n. ambassador -- and no district judge has ever been denied his or her seat because of a filibuster; that is, a failed cloture vote. and in the history of the senate, only seven circuit judge nominees have been denied their seats by a filibuster. five of george w. bush's nominees and two of president obama's nominees. so i ask
